Hand Function, Ulnar Nerve Injuries Treated by Hand and Arm Tutor

According to an article in the ”Journal of Trauma-Injury Infection & Critical Care” written by Drs.Sandra Kalmijn, Paul D.Kuypers etal
Forearm and wrist injuries are a common cause of morbidity and are  associated with suboptimal recovery of hand function. The authors discuss comparisons and  outcome after median, ulnar, or combined median-ulnar nerve injuries.
They concluded that peripheral nerve injuries at the forearm level can bring a result in substantial functional loss and have major social consequences. They identified factors influencing return to work that can be used to optimize postoperative treatment strategy.
When it comes to physical rehabilitation for forearm or Ulnar nerve surgeries the HANDTUTOR and ARMTUTOR are among the best tools available to return the patient to normal movement ability.
The TUTORS  have been developed to allow for functional rehabilitation of the whole body including the upper and lower extremity. The TUTORS consist of ergonomic wearable braces and include dedicated rehabilitation software that provide patient instructions and feedback to encourage intensive controlled exercise practice. The HANDTUTOR is used to give hand therapy to patients with Radial/Ulnar nerve and Brachial Plexus injuries, and other peripheral nerve injuries. Arm and leg surgery rehabilitation are also assisted by the HANDTUTOR, ARMTUTOR, LEGTUTOR and 3DTUTOR. The TUTOR system allows for controlled exercise of multijoints within the normal movement pattern which prevents the development of undesired and compensatory joint movement.
The new TUTOR system is a medical, physical and occupational therapy rehabilitation device that is used by children as well as adults. They are FDA and CE certified. See WWW.HANDTUTOR.COM for more information.
